Kolkata Jam Masala - studio recording

July 3, 2016

 

 Last March, in Blooperhouse studio, we have been recording a jam session who gave birth to Kolkata Jam Masala. Few pictures here, you'll find music and video on other pages.

 

 

KJM is a music band exploring Indian ragas with a pinch of rock'n'roll and psychedelic mind. Far from a consensual fusion, KJM incorporates technical excellence to create an exciting and passionate music. On one hand, there is Indian classical virtuoso and on second hand, there are musicians from the electro, rock, and psychedelic jazz scene. More than a fusion, it can be called contemporary Indian music. In this project, tracks are improvised on Indian modes (ragas), no more indication are given to musicians. During live concerts, musicians play in a sponteneous way. The apparent driving force behind b-IN-d’s music is to bring out an artist’s honest expression at a given moment and thus going beyond the established structures or paradigms of music. As a "Bitches Brew" for the African American jazz, b-IN-d explores the Indian psychedelia with an endless pleasure and the result is stunning. The spiritual spirit of traditional music is maintained but the shape is discussed, revised and polyphony exacerbated.
